Bratislava’s district mayors are concerned about census results for the capital

The regional association of Bratislava’s districts said on June 17 that it would ask the relevant authorities not to use the results of the 2011 census as a basis for calculating funding for Slovak cities, towns and villages, the TASR newswire reported. The mayors of Bratislava's individual boroughs noted at their meeting that a considerable number of people ignored the census. This means that the results are distorted and should not be used for tax distribution calculations. The mayors said the Bratislava borough of Nové Mesto has more than 40,000 inhabitants but only 28,000 people were recorded as living there by the census. Similar results were seen in Karlova Ves and other boroughs.

As funding for cities, towns and villages from the state is based on the number of inhabitants, the mayor of Petržalka district, Vladimír Bajan, said he views the results of the census as a serious threat to the capital city.
